Last year, for my final assessment for my Masters Degree in Gestalt Psychotherapy, we were to engage in a Passion Project. Throughout my training I had been very passionate about working with clients with Eating Disorders. Having had experienced Anorexia Nervosa myself in my late teens, going into the profession of psychotherapy I thought it only natural that I be interested in this field.
Having had several clients that were experiencing eating issues, it became very clear to me that there were some common factors that presented themselves with this illness. One of the most common factors I found, and in my own illness as well, was feelings of isolation.
